    Based on the IBM e-BI architectural framework, this IBM Redbooks publication explains the building blocks required to connect front-end e-BI user tools to the OS/390 data warehouse or data mart. It also shows the Web integration in the architecture and the accessibility of the data warehouse from browser-based clients in an e-business environment. The book provides:

    An overview of e-BI user connectivity and architectural framework on OS/390, as well as guidance on choosing the appropriate e-BI front-end user tool or e-BI user application, based on end-user profiles.

    Connectivity methodologies, contrasting Web-based middleware with traditional client/server middleware in 2-tier or N-tier solutions connecting users to the OS/390 data warehouse or data mart.

    The steps needed to implement front-end e-BI user tools accessing the OS/390 data warehouse and OLAP data mart. We highlight the stumbling blocks and show the implementation steps for:

    QMF for Windows


    DB2 OLAP Server Analyzer
